Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 57 : May, 1957 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 57: May, 1957 A stream-lined program for the Alumni Dinner promises to be a popular move on the part of the committee headed by Brenton Bullock '38. There will be one speaker - President Keeney, of course - and Robert H. Goff '24 will do the honors as toastmaster as well as President of the Associated Alumni, sponsors of the reunion of reunions. The heavy advance sale promises a record turnout. There will be seating by Classes for those who purchase their tickets in good season. (although the generous facilities of the Sharpe Refectory impose no seri ous limitation on the size of the crowd, there are preferential locations.) You'll do well to turn up for the dinner at when hand shake time can be enjoyed to best advantage. The Chapel Bell will ring at to bring the diners to their places for the ban quet which will be served at 7. A feature of the program will be the presentation of Brown Bear Awards to alumni whose service to the University has been outstanding but whose identification as recipients of the coveted trophies will be a guarded secret until the moment of their introduction. Music will have its emphasis, too, and there is talk of a novelty in this connection. The transfer of the President's Cane from Goff to his successor, Foster B. Davis, Jr., '39 will symbolize the transfer of alumni leadership at the end of the former's two-year term. A spectacular announcement by the Class of 1932 may be in order too. The 25-year group has picked up the challenge of 1931 s record-breaking gift to Brown and probably will have a report of its own for the diners. Expected, too, is the story on the 1957 Brown University Fund by Chairman Gavin Pitt '38. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
